Whatcha Lookin' For?

jtk

A few weeks ago we had the chance to sneak away for a date night.  This doesn't happen often anymore so we try to make the most of our "time off."  We had received a gift certificate to jtk for Christmas and finally found the time to use it. 
There is just one thing to say about this Lincoln Haymarket restaurant; WOW!  The service, atmosphere and food make this a must-try in Lincoln.  We made early reservations because it was Friday night, but the restaurant never seemed crowded.  jtk is located in the old Haymarket train station, which makes for a beautiful dining experience. 
We ordered from the "Date Night" menu, which is the best deal for the money.  It includes one appetizer, two entrees, a dessert and a bottle of wine for $50.  Every part of our meal was delicious.  We started with a bottle of Coastal Vines Pino Noir and the crab gratin, which was a rich blend of flavors and textures.  Dustin ordered the shoulder tenderloin with horseradish portabella pan sauce and I had the Parmesan crusted chicken.  Both dishes were served with perfectly cooked vegetables.  Dustin finished off his steak, but I had to get a box as I was only able to eat about half of my dish because the portions are generous.  For dessert we ordered bananas foster, and it too, was amazing. 
For the price and quality, you really won't find many restaurants like jtk in Nebraska.  This is a great place for a celebratory meal, a date night, or simply a place to have some appetizers and cocktails.

jtk made it in the Lincoln Journal Star in Jeff's Final Five as the number 3 restaurant in Lincoln.
